"nightly news" begins now. captions paid for by nbc-universal television >>> good evening. it's always been a huge gulf in american society and in our workforce, especially, what men and women are paid for the same work. tonight, we can report the numbers have moved. though the reason for it isn't good. figures from this year show women earned 83 cents on the dollar compared to what men earn. that's the highest number ever recorded. the bad news is the reason for it. the economy is in such crummy shape, a ton of men have been hard hit and many women in turn have prospered in this economy. still, in terms of women's income and earning power in the u.s., the number represents a victory, a milestone, and it's where we begin tonight with nbc's michelle kosinski. she's in miami beach for us tonight

? to help us discuss these issues, we have invited a group of excellent panelists. these dedicated men and women are familiar with many of the current obstacles that we must overcome to ensure a timely release of diversity data. and the data becomes very important for a lot of us as we begin to assess and evaluate where that company is and what needs to be done. in reality, it's an asset when they do provide that, that we can actually help them progress and advance, and increase their revenue and relationship in the community. you have to look at it from the positive side and not just from the negative. but it actually enhances that company's growth and future if they provide that kind of data because there is a variety of organizations that can provide assistance in further enhancing the growth and development as we see the demographics of our society changing within us. to start off with as our first panelist, we have carlos orta. he has been president and chief executive officers of the has panic -- hispanic organization of corporate responsibility. it is at a level of economic comp

put it, is a very good idea. tell us a little more about -- how you make the program work. you talk to the women's groups and they make recommendations as to what it should be done? >> guess, -- yes, and least once a year, 300 or 400 cases are chosen at random and we spend a few days, actually, going over these cases. particularly unfounded or exceptionally clear cases and they will find some cases where they felt there were some investigative leads that were not followed up on and so forth. the we go back and complete the investigation. there are sometimes active cases that are ongoing where we either need their assistance or they have questions for us. i think is a good check and balance. i think is the way to go. no matter how good your system may be internally, if you do not have someone from the outside that can review and critique what is your doing and always working to make it better, then it will be subject to some doubt as to whether or not you are thoroughly investigating these crimes. our job is to take the report. it does not matter what you may feel about the victim. t

. >> sreenivasan: the u.s. has set a one-year target for getting a framework peace agreement. u.s. troops joined iraqi forces today, in a raid in fallujah, the former insurgent stronghold. they were searching for a senior al-qaeda operative. it was unclear if he was one of the six people killed. earlier this week, american units fought in a two-day battle with al-qaeda militants. u.s. forces officially ended their combat role on september first, but they can still take part in operations, if the iraqis ask for help. in afghanistan, police fired into the air to disperse hundreds of protesters just outside kabul. at least one person was killed and 45 others wounded. the protesters were demonstrating against scattered burnings of the koran in the u-s last weekend. most of the injuries came from ricocheting bullets. police said the taliban are using the rallies to incite violence, ahead of next week's elections. lawmakers in france voted today to raise the retirement age to 62 to stem losses in the pension system. the national assembly, the lower house of the french parliament, approved sweeping ret

in one million foreigners a year into our country legally. nobody can match us. nobody can come close in the entire world. the united states opens our doors to a million people to follow the rules and come into this country. yes, you can call it compassion, but it is random compassion. who said these people, determined by the white house, are more deserving of compassion than these people over here because we've got, according to most of the estimates, between 12 million and 20 million of these people in our country. so, why -- who decides and who picks those 17,000? and are we starting a policy that everybody that's awaiting a hearing in a immigration court will just be excused? is that the new policy? so 17,000 is just a start? i don't know, we don't have an answer to that. but the real question we have to be concerned about is, who made the executive branch so independent to operate that they can shut down things like drilling in the gulf and turn loose people who have pending court cases on their say-so? without any consultation or action by the legislative branch of the governmen
